're in the business of putting local commerce online, doing the same thing for -- that amazon did for products we're doing for local commerce. and we're still in the early innings of that opportunity. local commerce is a $3 trillion market. most local transactions do not involve groupon today. so even if we can get a very small piece of the overall local commerce market, we think we can build a great business over time. we're really focused on what we can do over the long term there. >> you say you're misunderstood by wall street. but specifically here you are launching a new business. is this going to convince wall street that the company's on track? i mean 70% down over a year. >> i think that this product improves the value proposition that we have former chants. we can use payments to help merchants save thousands of dollars a year over what they're paying today. that makes merchants more likely to want to have a lasting, sustained relationship with groupon, and run more deals with groupon. >> i understand tyler back in the studio wants to jump in here. >> mr. mason, given the slide in the va
a foothold in the country. the chairman of atpan chamber of commerce and industry made the request at a meeting with vietnamese president. seeking the cooperation of the vietnamese government in improving the country's business environment. he says, japanese firms with high technologies can contribute to the economy. the president expressed his intention to provide maximum support stressing that vietnam is politically stable. officials at atpan chthe japan of commerce say firms in china may switch to vietnam. responding to recent anti-japan demonstrations in china. >>> company executives will launch the new models in japan by march 2013. sharp has commercialized the world's first super high definition lcd panels. they consume 20% of the power compared to previous models. the firm may supply the panels to taiwan's precision industry. sharp is in talks with the taiwanese electronics firm about capital tie-up. sharp aims to turn to the black by showing a net profit in the business year through march 2014. the firm's main creditors, are to offer loans up to a combined total of $2.5 bil
consumers. if it has an affect on the united states commerce, commerce of the united states, and if this affect is adverse, then following the statute that congress wrote for us, we're supposed to challenge the deal. >> tom: we have european regulators stop u.s. companies from merging a decade ago, ge and honeywell were stopped because of the eu, this year the nyse had to break apart their planned merger. is there a competition among international regulators. >> i think among international regulators or anti-trust enforcement agencies there is much more comedy than competition. so much commerce is global now and the lawsithin the european union and the united states have converged considerably over its last few decades. that for the most part, we usually come to the same conclusions on the same mergers. now there might be some differences when the market shares are different. and the economic effects are different in different geographic markets like the eu and the united states. >> one investigation that has been admitted to gooseel continues to be under review by your agen

of this system to get health insurance to people. certainly part of interstate commerce. i think everyone had a very strong view that we were on very solid grounds, there was no question that the constitution was in our favorite, and that o ultimate the law would be indicated. i think the competence level, early when we are fighting in district court and appellate courts was enormously high. >> paul, it's like one of the stories you get to hear it from the other side. you were consulting with people during the act, i suppose, who were saying i wonder if there's any constitutional hook here. how did those discussions pick up momentum, when did you think we could win this thing? >> so let me start with two disclaimers. one is that i don't really know anything about health care policies. unlike the other people on the panel. and i think there's a misconception that if an appellate lawyer argues a case, he knows what he's talking about -- [laughter] or knows the junders lying policy -- underlining policy, i'm here to tell you that's not true. one of the reasons i love appellate law, it's a perfec
of the financial sector. there's other sobering data as well, showing a still sluggish recovery. the commerce department revised its estimate of second-quarter economic growth down yesterday from 1.7%. mitt romney seized on the change in springfield, virginia. >> we are at 1.3%. this is... this is unacceptable. >> woodruff: other economic indicators also paint a mixed picture. the stock market itself, while down today, has been climbing in recent weeks to its highest levels in nearly five years. today, the dow jones industrial average lost almost 49 points after a weak manufacturing report and worries over europe to close just over 13,437. and the housing market may be stabilizing. a key index showed home prices rose in july to the highest level in almost two years, pointing to a recovery there. consumer spending was also up last month, but it was largely to pay for higher gasoline prices. for a closer look at all this with two people who follow these matters closely, we turn to kenneth rogoff, a professor of economics and public policy at harvard university, and co- author of "this time, it'

( kids actively conversing ) merseyside in the beginning of the 21st century. this is the small city of bootle, just north of liverpool. neighborhoods like this have fallen on hard times. what never changes is the love of soccer. ( crowd cheering ) in a pub around the corner, the grownups root for the liverpool football club. it's a passion. ( yelling, cheering ) the old men here once worked the docks downtown. for the young men, that's rarely an option now. ( oohing ) this is a tale of two nearby cities, united perhaps only by their support of liverpool soccer. one is the story of gritty neighborhoods that once housed the dock workers of a major european seaport. the other is the reformed, revitalized downtown
the commerce ministry visited the fair. they say there are great possibilities for business in the islam world. >> indonesia, malaysia, thailand, and the rest of the asian countries will be one. so one family, one corporation. and we hope that we can go to the global market in one family. >> reporter: with the world's largest muslim population, indonesia has been enjoying economic growth driven by robust domestic demand. but the country is not only attracting interest as an emerging economy. for the southeast asian countries which aim to increase the asian economy community by 2015, indonesia connects them with other islamic markets. desy tanjang, nhk world, jakarta. >> that will wrap up our bulletin for today. i'm patchari raksawong in bangkok. >>> artists use their work to reflect their perspectives and the world around them. the best among them change with changing times. that's what happened with japan's artist. his painting was once typical of this style, but the march 2011 disaster prompted him to reconsider his approach to his craft. >> reporter: familiar and yet somehow very different.

in the the country before the protests. a spokesperson at china's commerce ministry said investments were down 1.4% from a year earlier. the decline was due to the global impact stemming from the european debt crisis. the european union invested about 4% less from january to august of the previous year. investments from the united states fell almost 3%. meanwhile, japan's direct investments into the first eight months of the the year rose over 16% from the year before. but that was before the anti-japan demonstrations this month, which saw rioters attacking japanese supermarkets and dpe stroiing factories. it's uncertain whether investments from japan will continue to rise. many japanese firms are reassessing the risks of doing business in the cntry following the protts. > now let's gt a check of the markets. u.s. and european markets ended higher after further monetary easing was announced. how are things kicking off this thursday morning? >> good morning. u.s. and european investors were cheered by the bond buying measures and positive housing data in the u.s. helped market sentiment there. le
about the agenda focusing on trade and commerce suddenly being overshadowed by beijing's frank comments. >> it has been a strange day. as you said, it started off with backslapping over the growth of the china-eu trade arrangement over the last 10 years. bilateral trade levels have quadrupled. there was praise from the e use side for china and praise from china for the east side, but then, as has already been made clear, suddenly, the chinese decided to get a bit negative and the live transmission was turned off. diplomatically, the eu said he was getting into the substance of the negotiation, but it was the chinese who insisted on that happening. there is a sense that the summit has been sort of run by the chinese. there was not even a final press conference because the chinese wanted a list of which journalists would be there. the european commission had to say that was just not on. there was no press conference of any sort. smiles and backslapping on trade and the economy, and yet, this underlying sense that the chinese are dictating the way the meeting is going on, and, of course, t
it harder for european companies to compete on the same level. the commerce ministry of china says it is deeply regrets this eu decision. very, very cross. let's have a listen. >> restricting chinese exports will hurt the interests of both chinese and european industry. no doubt about it. however cheap the products are, manufacturers are suffering because the speed of which this industry has ramped up over the last few years as well as falling demand in europe because the financial crisis. companies in china are hemorrhaging red ink just like their counterparts in europe. >> will china retaliate? that threat is on the table at the moment. >> there is the big airline news. qantas is in trouble but it is hitching up with emirates. >> it the momentous day in airline history. qantas has made its biggest ever arrangement in its airline. it is tied up with emirates. they have signed a 10-year deal which will see qantas getting rid of its singapore hub. the hub will now be in dubai. the co-chairmen arrangement with british airways is gone after 20 years. this is more just a code-sharing a

can't use it as effectively. >> will we see an e-commerce capability on twitter? >> i think we do see lots of commerce take place every day on twitter. it's particularly interesting in areas with things like perishable inventory like tickets. the game or show starts in x hours. if we don't sell the tickets there is nothing we can do with them. we are paying attention to that and are thinking about ways to participate in the value exchange. we'll see what happens. >> what's your biggest challenge from a revenue perspective? >> our biggest advertising challenge is making sure our revenue reflects is percentage of users that exist -- that use twitter in various countries. we have users all over the world. the user base is growing globally fast. we need to expand our advertising platform globally beyond just a couple countries we are in now. >> you can watch the entire interview including his answers to questions that were tweeted in by our viewers on mediamoney.cnbc.com. >> before we let you go, you talked to him about a myriad of things certainly. you asked whether he was going to go pu
in at a third of the price with all of the access to their online e-commerce and m-commerce prices. >> we like amazon in mobilecom putting best. you mentioned apple. why not apple? it's the darling of the sect. >> sure. there's two concerns on apple. one is will r there any iphone 5s disappointments and people not happy with the innovations? most important thing is apple starting to get to a 20% level in the nasdaq 100. the etfs, mutual funds benched to that index and others starting to get to the point to look to rebalance as they did in 2010 if apple goes higher there could be substantial selloff. >> from etfs and mutual funds who are holders? thank you very much. sue, back to you. >> thank you. >>> well, the democratic convention has turned the pot light on charlotte, north carolina, this week. here's the economic drill down on the nation's 19th largest city. in just the past decade, nearly 7,000 firms have invested more than $12 billion in to the queen city thanks to its stronghold of finance, transportation and distribution. with a population of 772,000, metro charlotte currently has an u
this global commerce going. and so without that investment, we, you know, we can only speculate what might happen if we weren't here. melissa: and let's speculate about that right now. what would turmoil in the strait mean for the price you pay at the pump? joining me oppenheimer and company senior oil analyst fadel gheit. thanks so much for joining us. if the iranians did follow through on their threat to close the strait, what is your bet what would happen to the price of oil that instance? >> they can try but can they actually do it? the answer is no. the probability would be very low. basically if we have any military action in this part of the world one would expect the crude oil prices would rise very sharply but it will be very short-lived because of why the fundamentals means oil prices should be close to 80, not close to 100. melissa: let's flesh out a couple things you said there. when i was talking to the commanding officer and as well as everybody out there in the strait they had different answers as to how long they thought the iranians would be able to shut down that little 1
'll do. there is a lot of commerce that flows through the area. we're out there showing that that commerce can get through. melissa: yeah. so much oil flows through this region it is essential. what is it like when they come check you out? >> it is actually pretty neat to see what that is. we have had the russians as well swris tinge us. it is always interesting to see, you hear the stories of the big bad wolf, but when you see the people close and in perp and ships alongside, normal sailors like yourself a lot of times sailing alongside looking across, looking across the water from each other. actually, brings it closer to home. melissa: what's the impression, what kind of impact do you make on them? >> i imagine we bother them a little bit that we go through each time and, i know they get on the radio or they make their, their announcements in their news how they dislike it. and i imagine no country likes that with so much american presence or any other coalition presence going through here. melissa: what do you think is the impression that the fleet gives off? what is
of the decisions of the hughes court -- whether congress has exceeded its power to regulate interstate commerce. so whether it could be regulations that went across state lines, very broad regulations. well, that will be one of the arguments in the health care bill that comes up for argument next month. the question is whether congress has exceeded his authority under the commerce clause. most of the cuts towards congress, that is, i think most of the president, certainly in the late 1930s, some of which chief justice hughes wrote, he gave congress more leeway to regulate interstate commerce. that became pretty much the modern commerce clause doctrine for the next six years. but we don't know about the score. this is a very polarized court and presidents goes the other way. also. this will be very interesting to see that. to see what happens. thank you very much.

. challenges like illicit drug trafficking, trans-national crime and terrorism, in hansen commerce between nations, and dealing with climate change. it requires courage and leadership to take the first step toward mutual understanding. i have been particularly impressed recently with the president of colombia as he reaches out to two of his neighbors to restore diplomatic relations. they do not always agree on everything, but they can now work together on issues of security in and across their borders. i am particularly pleased that he has begun talks with the farc. this morning, i was on the radio with the president, talking about this problem, which i hope he will resolve with the support of other leaders in his country. likewise, to improve the relationship between my country and cuba, that requires courage on both sides. i am distressed that the united states -- that they continue the economic embargo against cuba and displayed no interest in furthering or improving diplomatic relations. all of us have continued to press the cuban government to respect human rights and political openne
